Surely the application does what it promises well! I just wonder, is it possible to use this while being using a VPN for internet access? It does not seem so, as far as I could notice... Edit: I read it is not possible because of the usage of the VpnService in Android, so that's fine. Is there any difference in how the system handles SOCK5 proxies? Is there a way to employ such a proxy for the traffic inspection in netguard? I am a regular VPN user, that's why I ask ;)
So far so good. I just installed this app and it appears to be functioning as intended on my Nexus 6P. I may not be using it in the most ethical way, but I am enjoying the fact that I can block an app from using my cellular data when it is in the foreground (such as an app that doesn't need to use data for anything but loading advertisements).
The app does block properly. So thumbs up. However, i found tgat the phone has become significantly slower. I'm at the point of considering to disable the app...
Does what I need BUT it would be a five star in my book if it alerted me in real time "This app blocked by Netguard"
Its follow well the orders for blocking internet connection on selected apps. But it fail with some apps which are allowed to access the internet , producing weird random unknown network malfunction. E.x WhatsUp not working well regardless is allowed. There are much other app with almost same symptoms.
Easy to use and does exactly what I need. Thanks!
